After sell-out screenings in 2012, The Yard is returning as (probably) London’s only warehouse cinema! We’ve gathered together Hollywood hits and cult classics to make up a corker of a season!
There’s a drama queen in all of us, so to kick off the year we’re dusting off our tops hats, slipping into those heels and applying our make-up. We’re shining the spotlight on the people who love (and hate) to be in it, looking at how actors ‘playing’ other actors, or even themselves, in films can often be a means of self-critique, self-love and self-loathing. From the tragic to the downright hilarious, we’ll look at both the role of actor as ‘performer’, and the uncertain place they are left once a career or stardom has failed, faded or blossomed.
First up (Thursday 21st) we have Living in Oblivion, starring Steve Buscemi – the ultimate love letter to the perils of low-budget filmmaking. Friday night fun comes in the form of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights, followed by a suitably glittery party in the The Yard Bar. Then, on Sunday, when you’ve boogied so much you can boogie no more, curl up with a hot water bottle and a cold Bloody Mary and enjoy Pedro Almodovar’s masterpiece All About My Mother.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll boogie, you’ll eat pick’n’mix.
The Yard is Back. Weekends just got good again.
